Middle Grade Authors Melissa Thomson and Malayna Evans It’s time for Middle-Grade adventure! In Melissa Thomson’s funny standalone middle-grade novel, Tito the Bonecrusher, Oliver enlists the help of his favorite lucha-libre wrestler turned action star to spring his dad from a deportation holding center. In Jagger Jones and the Mummy's Ankh, Malayna Evans introduces us to a whiz kid from Chicago's South Side whose encyclopedic knowledge of ancient Egypt is tested when he travels back in time. Malayna Evans is the author of the middle-grade time travel series, The Egyptified Joneses. She earned her Ph.D. in Egyptology from the University of Chicago and has used her background to craft a tale loaded with historical details, attested ancient actors, and a magical adventure full of gods, mummies and wriggling creatures. She lives in Chicago, Illinois. Melissa Thomson has been both an elementary and middle-school teacher, as well as a literacy coach, in New York and Washington, DC public schools. She is also the author of the Keena Ford chapter book series.
